Academic Standard: Framework
The Tennessee State Math Standards were reviewed and developed by Tennessee teachers for Tennessee schools. The rigorous process used to arrive at the standards in this document began with a public review of the then-current standards. After receiving 130,000+ reviews and 20,000+ comments, a committee composed of Tennessee educators spanning elementary through higher education reviewed each standard. The committee scrutinized and debated each standard using public feedback and the collective expertise of the group. The committee kept some standards as written, changed or added imbedded examples, clarified the wording of some standards, moved some standards to different grades, and wrote new standards that needed to be included for coherence and rigor. From here the standards went before the appointed Standards Review Committee to make further recommendations before being presented to the Tennessee Board of Education for final adoption.
The result is Tennessee Math Standards for Tennessee Students by Tennesseans.
